I have the Excel file which contains all style guide that controls lighting, material, cameras and additional object layers. I need to write COFFEE script which need to get the value from Excel. I'm actually new in for Cinema4d and COFFEE script, appreciate if someone could advice on this. Any advice/references is highly appreciated.

You won't be able to read a native Excel file, I think. What you could do is export the Excel data as a .CSV file, that's just a text file so much easier to manipulate.
Once you have done that, then you can think about how to use the values from the file in a C4D scene, assuming that's what you are hoping to do.

For this level of plugin, you would be served much better using the Python interface. COFFEE is just not that expansive and powerful for the things that you intend to accomplish.
